About TCN

Hi, I'm Kelly!

I’m a nutritionist, primary physical education teacher and learning designer based in the north-western suburbs of Melbourne. I’m a passionate educator with over 20 years of classroom teaching experience. I’ve combined my love of learning with my nutrition and food knowledge to bring curious food education to school communities. I facilitate positive food learning experiences, conduct school incursions and parent education sessions and present teacher professional learning.

My food education programs and workshops are evidence-based, equipping adults and children with a toolkit of food skills and literacy in order to embed it in their everyday lives.

 

My special interest in child development, feeding behaviours and developmentally appropriate health messages help schools and parents navigate the world of nutrition practically and with success. My lens towards curiosity with a touch of creativity makes food education become practical and achievable for all.
